Something that's been gnawing at me since some of the earliest trailers is whether Kirk's friend Gary Mitchell figures in the story line. In TOS' "Where No Man Has Gone Before" they were supposed to have been long time close friends.
There is an actor (I don't his name) in the trailers that looks exactly like the young Gary Lockwood. This may be a silly question to those actually in the know but I am curious...I would love to see the "back story" there.
BTW, Lockwood did not age as well as Shatner; or at least didn't have the plastic surgeons that Shatner had.
